AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

.UPDATE...
EVENING UPDATE.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
FORECAST HAS BEEN UPDATED NOW THAT THE FRONT HAS PUSHED ACROSS THE
REGION AND THE PRECIPITATION HAS ENDED. PREVIOUS GUSTY WINDS ARE
DIMINISHING ACROSS THE TN VALLEY WITH A FEW GUSTS LEFT IN EASTERN AL
AND EASTERN TN. SKIES ARE ALSO CLEARING OUT AND TEMPERATURES ARE
DROPPING ON TRACK WITH THE OVERNIGHT LOWS. NEXT FORECAST ISSUE WILL
BE WHEN AND IF LOWER CLOUDS MOVE BACK IN AS THE NAM/HRRR WERE
ORIGINALLY SUGGESTING. UPDATED TIMING LOOKS TO BE AFTER 10Z FOR A
LOW TO MID LEVEL CLOUD DECK TO MOVE IN.

.AVIATION...
/ISSUED 526 PM CST WED NOV 26 2014/
FOR 00Z TAFS...CIGS LOWERING ACROSS THE AREA NOW TO ABOUT 5-7K FT. A
COLD FRONT WILL MOVE WEST TO EAST ACROSS THE TERMINALS BY 06Z...WITH
A BRIEF PERIOD OF GUSTY WINDS BEHIND IT. SKIES MAY ALSO BRIEFLY CLEAR
BEFORE ADDITIONAL MOISTURE RETURNS. CONFIDENCE TOO LOW ON THE TIMING
OF THE CLEARING CLOUDS TO INCLUDE IN TAFS AT THIS TIME.
SPRINKLES/LIGHT RAIN AND AN OCCASIONAL GUST ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH 06Z
AS WELL BUT NOT WIDESPREAD ENOUGH TO INCLUDE.

.PREV DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 824 PM CST WED NOV 26 2014/
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE WITH THE FORECAST FOR THIS EVENING. THE COLD
FRONT APPROACHING FROM THE WEST IS ON THE HUNTSVILLE DOORSTEP AS OF
02Z. WITH THIS FRONT...WESTERLY WIND GUSTS HAVE INCREASED TO 30-35
MPH IN SOME SPOTS. THIS IS EXPECTED TO BE ONLY FOR A SHORT
DURATION...LIKELY ONLY UNTIL ABOUT 4 TO 5Z. SITES WEST OF THE FRONT
ARE ALREADY REPORTING WINDS LESS THAN 10 MPH. AS WELL...MONTE SANO
HAS REPORTED SOME LIGHT SNOW OR A RAIN/SNOW MIX WITH THE
PRECIPITATION CROSSING THE EASTERN HALF OF THE AREA. HAVE CHANGED THE
LIGHT SNOW/RAIN TO FLURRIES/SPRINKLES WITH LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION
EXPECTED. ANY SNOW WOULD BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. THIS
PRECIPITATION IS QUICKLY MOVING EAST AND HAVE THEREFORE CHANGED THE
FORECAST TO DRY AFTER 06Z.

WITH THE CLOUDY SKIES...TEMPERATURES HAVE NOT FALLEN AS QUICKLY AS
FORECAST AND HAVE UPDATED HOURLY TEMPS TO REFLECT THE TRENDS. WITH
SKIES ALREADY QUICKLY CLEARING BEHIND THE FRONT...DID NOT CHANGE THE
MIN TEMP FOR THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.
